It's been a pretty good day. It feels weird to be on vacation from working with students. Hopefully it'll only be a couple more weeks. In the meantime, I am determined that I will enjoy it this time around, and will get things done too. Today I got a good amount of exercise- had fun dancing to some songs on Spotify as part of that. :) I worked on cleaning the fridge, though it could use some more attention than I gave it (I think I need to look at expiration dates...). Got some veggies and fruit cut and/or bagged up. Tried a chocolate pudding made with chia seeds. I'm not certain that my nickel allergy is okay with the seeds, but I'm trying them again anyway. I know I have broken out on my arms a little today, and have been a bit itchy, but it might not be them....seems like it has been before, but we'll see.
Chlorophyll is good for revitalizing a thyroid, so I'm using that for the second time this week. It's a mint flavored water when you add it to the 8 oz of water they suggest.
I did dejunk a couple areas today, and did some dusting and put some things away that had been sitting in an area unattended. So it feels and looks better to have gotten these bits of things done.
I chose good things to eat today too. Lots of fruits and veggies mainly. :)
I just had a friend over and we watched a movie on Netflix called Blink of an Eye. We enjoyed it.
Tomorrow's another day to redeem well. :)

My daughter came over and we planted a garden this morning. It took us two hours. I know it's kind of late, but we had to wait until my husband could get a tiller borrowed and used and then find a time when the weather would cooperate and she could come over.
I tried three new recipes today. They were good. One was for a smoothie, another for a frozen fruit bar, and another was a pudding made with chia seeds. Those things thicken up nicely.
I finished a book my son had recommended, and caught up on some tv on huluplus.
This evening my daughter and I went for a walk for just over an hour. We don't usually get together so much, so this was nice today!
I'm very happy with all the exercise and with eating such healthy things today. Although...the nutrition tracker says I should have eaten at least 2500ish calories, according to how much exercise I've had today, and I've had less then 1900, but I'm not going to worry about that at all. :)

This is the first year I've ever been successful feeding orioles, and boy are they enjoying their feeder just outside my kitchen window. I just love their vibrant colors and all of their antics and songs. :)
I enjoy seeing the rabbit that comes to eat under the feeder, and the turkey that does too; as well as seeing all the other birds that come, hummingbirds included, but the orioles are my absolute favorite. I don't know how long they stay in an area, but am enjoying them daily as they are here.
Today I saw a fawn walking, checking some greenery out. It was SO cute. I dare say it was up and about on its own. It decided, when it saw the dogs and I, that it had better go hide again. My dogs tracked it to where it entered the tall grass in the field, but I told them we had to leave the "baby" alone, that that was where it was supposed to be, and they accepted that. The fawn stayed put (I couldn't see it, only where the grass was not all straight up in places-where something obviously had a place to lie down in).
I've been cleaning out and reorganizing, as well as writing down all kinds of health (food,etc.) info I've gleaned from magazines, in my kitchen this weekend.
Tomorrow I plan to get back on track with food and exercise!
